Would the Chair advise me whether or not I could introduce such a holiday by Executive Degree in the future, rather than through a Bill of Parliament?

On another note, I wish to co-sponsor this Bill.

I thank the honorable member for his question. I rule that as the original Regional Holidays Act was passed through parliament, there is sufficient precedent to reserve the powers of creating repeating holidays to the Parliament through Act. In addition, the President's duties as described in the Constitution indicate that the President has supreme authority over external affairs (embassies, war), not domestic ones. Therefore, should any non-repeating holidays be decreed, they should come from the Ministry of Development or the Minister without portfolio's office.

Also, I thank the honorable member for his support.

"there is sufficient precedent to reserve the powers of creating repeating holidays to the Parliament through Act"
While precedent is great when requiring advice how to act, it is not legally binding. Parliament should legislate.

I do co-sponsor this bill.

What I mean is that the wording of the Act implies that establishing this kind of holiday should be done through Act.

Nevertheless, I would totally support/write an act reserving certain areas of governance to the various branches.
